Somewhat scary tale with a Chinese vampire as a twist to the vampire legend. The book though is too fantastic; that is, it doesn't make the characters and plot realistic. The vampire's plan for dominion doesn't make sense. Nor does Sue's (the heroine) claim that all vampires are of the Chinese kind and need to be kept away with jade. Crosses just don't make it; neither does garlic. That's replaced by willow tree branches. No thought is given to all the books & movies written where crosses and garlic work. If this had been another type creature besides a vampire and if both the Chinese symbols and Western ones worked together this book would have been more realistic and even scarier. The characters suffer from denial which is common in horror books. However, in this book the denials don't make sense. Plus some of the characters go quickly from denial to action against the vampire. Despite all these faults, it's still a scary book and guaranteed to shake you up on a rainy, windy night.
